Experienced BC teacher, 27 years in public schools, happy to teach English speaking, writing, and reading.

Methodology

My name is David and I have been a teacher for 28 years. I’m very comfortable teaching English in all forms: written, spoken, and reading. I’m also happy to teach English at any level, Kindergarten to adult. I look forward to hearing from you.

I approach a new student by finding out where he or she is on the learning spectrum. How does he or she learn best? What are his or her strengths and interests? Next, I will find out how the student is doing in the subject being tutored, and progress from that point. My goal is always to help the student progress in both skills and understanding.

Background

I was a classroom teacher for 20 years, a librarian for seven, and a private tutor for three years. I have had students in all grades between kindergarten and grade 11. I’ve always had good feedback from my students, and several of them have stayed with me longer than they had originally intended to.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $26/h

Details

I charge $35 per hour and $40 if I have to travel more than 20 minutes drive from my home.

David's resume

I have bachelors degrees in Education and Music from UBC, and I have a diploma in Elementary Curriculum from SFU.

David's response

I was very happy to meet with Yihuan and his son Owen. We had a total of 10 lessons over three weeks. Both Yihuan and Owen were welcoming and respectful. Owen showed a desire to learn and made good progress. I wish them both all the best for the future.
